|Contact Person||Veronica Braun|
|Who is it for?||Children 12 months to 8 yrs|
|Who started it?||Verónica Braun|
|When did it start?||Fall of 2001|
|How did you start?||Many challenges, a grass roots program, I started it to provide a place to play in Spanish to my baby.|
|How does it work?||
Children build vocabulary through the use of original and traditional music, movement, games, educational materials, arts and crafts and visual props.
I run most classes, although because we have expanded, there are a few instructors who run some of the classes
|How do you keep the group/program going?||By promoting it all year round.|
|How does it benefit families?||Children love to learn Spanish this way, they are enthusiastic about their class aside from all the benefits involved with learning a second language at a young age. Spanish is becoming essential in this global world in the US.|
|Any advice for others who want to set up something similar?||
Devote all your time to your business and eventually it will grow.
I will be starting a training program in 2011, If anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit who loves languages, is patience and loves working with children ¡HOLA! would like to share it's beauty with those interested outside of New York City.
